June 15 Update: New Amex offer for goodfood, Fairmont Stay Close extended for Canadian mountain resorts and Flair & Swoop's summer flight schedules

Yet another excellent Amex offer came out today - this one is for the prepared meal service goodfood and provides a $20 statement credit when you spend $80 or more. Rewards Canada contributor Jeff W. let us know he got it on his Marriott Bonvoy card while in the Rewards Canada household we got it on the The Platinum Card and Cobalt Card. You can find the offer details and more on our Guide to American Express Canada 'Amex Offers'


By now you should be very familiar with Fairmont's Stay Close offer as we've had probably close to half a dozen posts about the offer but wanted to pass along news that the booking window for the first four hotels to have the offer has been extended to June 22. Originally if you wanted to book the at the Fairmont Banff Springs, Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge, Fairmont Chateau Lake Louiseand Fairmont Chateau Whistler. you had only until today (June 15) to get in on the offer. Now you have an additional week to make that decision! Learn more about the Stay Close offer here.
